I had the immeasurable good fortune to hit the opening of the New York Art Book Fair at MoMA's PS1 satellite installation in Queens Thursday night, after extending a brief trip to Connecticut to work on a project with musician Natti Vogel.
All my favorite "Boys with Beards" were there (a LOT of names, I know, but each well worth a visit). It took me nearly the whole opening just to wind my way thru the "gay" tent. I barely scratched the surface. If you get a chance this weekend, I highly recommend a visit.
My birthday is October 18th. Just sayin'. It's my Jesus Year. ;-)
I'm the kinda boy that likes Dirty Looks (and so should you). ;-)

Last, yet hardly least, one final beautiful "Boy with Beard"-- Bruno from Self-Publish, Be Happy. Deep in the heart of Italy, Bruno's mom has been slaving away to make a pile of African wax print tote bags for Bruno's booth. True story. Buy a tote and buy momma's freedom (bag by bag)!
